Varsity for my first year swimming.
I want to be recruited to swim in college because I feel that I missed the opportunity to begin swimming early in my life so that is why I want to continue swimming to make up for the time I lost from playing other sports. Swimming is my greatest passion and it is incredibly rewarding to see my times improve every time I swim in a meet.
Going into swim my first year I had minimal experience in the water other than playing water polo for one season just before my first season started. I was expected to be a lane leader because I was pretty fast compared to all of my other teammates and because I had almost no experience with swimming I had to learn very quickly how to read sets while also trying not to swim slowly in front of my teammates. Out of the pool, I showed leadership in my own home by helping my mother in any way I could. Doing chores or playing with and watching my brother who is diagnosed with epilepsy, autism, and dravet syndrome.
I pursue healthy athletic performance by not taking or even considering taking performance-enhancing drugs which would cause all of my times to be cheated on and not earned through hard work. I maintain a healthy friend group that does not condone the use of performance-enhancing drugs or any drugs at all. I also exercise whenever I am not able to swim for a while in order to maintain a certain level of fitness required in the sport of swimming.
Every summer I participate in the Toledo YES project which is a service project that takes place over a course of three days in July. For this service project participants usually paint houses for those who can't, such as the elderly or disabled completely for free. This service project has taught me so much about the importance of showing kindness to people you may or not know. It has also taught me how important it is to help those who are in need of help.
